IHG Rewards Club “Travel Industry Discount Rate” 9% To 40% Off (Qualifying)

15 Comments

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) offers discounts (as do most travel providers) to travel agents and/or travel industry professionals. These rates are usually deeply discounted but often not available with other lodging providers.

IHG Rewards Club Travel Agent & Professional Rate

IHG Rewards Club made these rates eligible (unlike with all other hotel programs that I know) for stay credits and points three years ago.

You can access IHG’s web page for Travel Consult Discount rate here (note that the booking link on IHG’s page no longer woks – you can use this one instead).

The discount that is offered varies from hotel to hotel and maxes at 40% off. The lowest discount that I have seen is 9%.

Note that the ID requirements are strict. You should not book this rate unless you have the required credentials.

You must book the rate minimum of one day in advance. The cancellation and/or prepay requirements are set by hotels. You should always check them before making the booking.

Conclusion

I have used this rate offer several times over the past year and have always received the benefits of my Royal Ambassador or IHG Rewards Club Spire Elite status along with the points/stay credits. I have been carded few times but not always. You should not book it unless you have the required documentations to use it.

The travel agent rates that are offered by Marriott and Fairmont are lot lower but not qualifying under their loyalty programs. I do like the fact that this IHG Travel Consult Rate is qualifying under the terms and conditions of the IHG Rewards Club.

The rate plan is not going away but IHG did some changes to the booking engine on its website that broke quite a few pages including this travel agent one.

Here are the short terms and conditions of this rate plan:

*Note: You must present a valid IATAN Card or Photo ID with a Letter of Authorization on agency letterhead that you are entitled to the discount upon check-in
